About Masha MarjanovichBefore receiving her MFA from the University of Washington, Masha Marjanovich studied European art in France, Hungary and Yugoslavia. The classical influences firmly rooted her art in the realm of figurative expressionism, allowing for stylistic versatility that nevertheless retains her signature aesthetic of the sculptural form. Through her study of music and dance helped her master the skill of expressive movement that makes her sculptures breathe with life.
Masha`s early opus was themed on ancient mythology, and explored the ceramic medium. She won her first award from the Museum of Ceramic Arts in Yugoslavia. Shifting focus to contemporary themes, Masha mastered the mediums of cast resin, stone and bronze. She exhibited her work in Seattle, Los Angeles and Santa Fe, attracting interest of private collectors. Her sculptures now grace public and private collections in the US, Europe and Australia. Her clients include Sheraton Hotels, Ramsay Hospitals, Sydney Olympics Committee, Laguna Beach Hotel, University of Queensland, Seketin Beauty Salon, Roma Italian Restaurant, The Little Snail Restaurant, Dr. Harold Lancer, Dr. David Villareal, Lang Walker, and others. The latest sculpture in Masha`s mother-and-child series will be unveiled next year at the new Canberra Women and Children`s Hospital.
Masha is a professional member of the International Sculpture Center.
Artist Statement of Masha MarjanovichExcerpt from the Interview with Masha Marjanovich by D. Bombek, the New Woman Magazine.
Q: Who should say what is art and what isn?t?
A: I am glad you asked that question. This has been a particularly touchy issue since the advent of abstract art. Although professional art critic has a very useful function in enhancing our understanding and appreciation of an artwork, good art should speak equally to everyone even without such interpretation. So the bottom line is that everyone should have the right to value and assess art, because art is indeed a very personal experience. If you find that a work of art moves you in some way, then it is unquestionably valid as art. The remainder of the process of evaluating art is academic.
Q: What inspires you?
A: I am always amazed at the beauty found in nature, where form and function are intertwined in an aesthetic balance. The shape of a slender woman?s arm, a sweeping bird wing, a delicate flower petal, these forms are not only beautiful, but very expressive as well. They can relate a rich tapestry of emotions and experiences to which everyone can relate.

Reviews of work by Masha MarjanovichStar Treatment - by Claire Low, The Canberra Times
Sculptor Masha Marjanovich has created the 1.2m-high bronze work for the new Canberra Women and Children?s Hospital. It was commissioned by the Starlight Children?s Foundation and was presented to ACT Health Minister Kathy Gallagher at the Star Ball fundraising event at the Hotel Realm.
Marjanovich said the sculpture is a tribute to the charitable work of the Foundation. In her sculpture, the woman holding the child symbolically represents the support of the Foundation for seriously ill children. ?The child is reaching for a star, a symbol of hope for recovery. The sculpture is an ode to a new start in life for children, " said Marjanovich. She explained that the star was designed to gently curve around the figures as it rises, so that the sculpture would impart an uplifting feeling of hope and joy.
Companies that pledge their support to the Foundation will be given a star plaque on the sculpture base to honour their generosity.
Reaching for a Star is part of Marjanovich?s mother and child series, which includes sculptures at the North Shore Private Hospital in Sydney and Lancer Clinic in Beverly Hills. ?Mother and child motif is one of the oldest themes in art history, because it relates the most beautiful human experience, unconditional love, ? said Marjanovich.
Reaching for a Star will be unveiled at the new Women and Children?s Hospital next year.
